High Gravity Compounds


High Gravity Compounds from RTP Company combine the processing benefits of thermoplastics with desirable features of metals. You can choose the exact density necessary (up to 11 g/cm3) to make your design perform as you imagined it. While formulating your custom compound, RTP Company’s engineers can often add molded-in, custom color to allow easy identification of your product without expensive secondary painting processes.

High Gravity Compounds offer:

  • the ability to control the center of gravity by adjusting mass
  • an “expensive feel” by adding heft
  • sound and vibration dampening
  • resistance to chemicals and corrosion

Some common industries that benefit from High Gravity Compounds are cosmetics, sporting goods, military, automotive, and packaging.
